About

Elena Underhill is an artist, illustrator, painter and designer. Born to artist parents, painting as long as she can remember she continues to be inspired by life, people and places.

Artist Statement

Painting and drawing become states of flow for me. In this state I lose connection with time in its past and future coordinates, as it appears to collapse into the present. The present becomes an embodied experience with the cartography shaped by my receptivity and immersion to the sounds, sensations, light, colour of the whole creative experience.
